Need more info about 1990 Ford Aerostar oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1990 Aerostar’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Aerostar in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Aerostar may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Aerostar. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ford Aerostar?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1990 Ford Aerostar motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ford has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1990 Ford Aerostar vehicles.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Aerostar’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Aerostar by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

1990 Ford Aerostar Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Aerostar? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford Aerostar engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Aerostar oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
